Introduce the powers of magnetism with the Primary Science Magnet Set. This award-winning set gives kids hands-on experience with scientific concepts like polarization, attraction and repulsion, magnetic fields, and more through interactive experiments that feel more like play than learning. Winner of the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Best Toy Gold Award, this set includes 14 chunky plastic pieces and 10 double-sided activity cards featuring step-by-step instructions for a variety of magnetic experiments that are suitable for kids ages 4 to 12. Give your kids a head start in science with the Primary Science Magnet Set.
Featuring 10 activity cards and 6 more downloadable experiments ranging in difficulty from beginning to challenging, the Primary Science Magnet Set provides plenty of hands-on, interactive practice with the concept of magnetism. Engaging experiments visually demonstrate polarization, magnetic fields, magnetization and demagnetization, attraction and repulsion, and other key scientific concepts. Full-color, double-sided activity cards provide a materials list (some experiments require common household items that are not included in the kit) and photos on one side, and step-by-step instructions on the reverse, as well as challenge questions and additional activity suggestions. Some cards also feature fun “Did you know?” trivia facts about magnets.
The Primary Science Magnet set includes 10 hands-on magnetic experiments including: (1) The Amazing Maze – discover how magnets retain their magnetic force, even through other objects, by using your magnetic post to move magnetic bugs around a maze through its plastic bottom; (2) Floating Magnets – explore attraction and repulsion using a magnetic pole and magically “floating” ring magnets; (3) Snap-on Cars – experiment with polarization using snap-together cars; (4) Paperclips – test the strength of each magnet by experimenting with the number of paperclips each can hold.
